Designee for "Chief Performance Officer" withdraws over unpaid taxes

Nancy Killefer: She owed only 950 bucks

Nancy Killefer, designated by President Obama to become Deputy Director of the Office of Management and Budget and Chief Performance Officer, has withdrawn from both posts, saying she has "come to realize" that "my personal tax issue" could become a "distraction."

I suppose she's right, but as far as we know, Killefer's problem was that she failed to make a number of quarterly payments for the District of Columbia's unemployment compensation tax for a household employee, and the municipal government slapped a lien on her house for $946.69.

Perhaps she had other "tax issues" too, but honestly, how can you make Killefer "withdraw" without asking the same of Tom Daschle who evaded $128,000 in income taxes?

What do you think? Post a comment.
